Re: Need advice re long telephoto lenses

Hi Rod

I can only comment on the following Pentax MF lenses;

K300mm f4 - cheap, not bad but prone to CA/PF in high contrast situations

A*300mm f4 - superb. I paid just under £400 for mine. I do hear the F*300 f4.5 is a little better and you get AF, but it costs more.

M-400mm f5.6 - I haven't had any problems with CA or PF on mine. Cost me £250.

If I had the money I'd get the DA*300.

All I want is a digital back for my trusty K1000 . . .
